Evidence-Based Practice

Screening, Brief Intervention, & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) Training

SBIRT is an evidence-based practice used to identify, reduce, and prevent problematic use and dependence on alcohol and illicit drugs. Coupled with “motivational interviewing,” in which the clinician partners with the client to make decisions about the client’s care, SBIRT is used in primary care practices, hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms, college and university health services, employee assistance programs and a range of community settings.
